MAN has had severe delays and cancellations this weekend – I wouldn’t risk it tbh. The northern airports are clearly worse affected than LHR just now. I would find another departure locally (do you still have Emirates going from EDI?) or just wait until tomorrow.

BA certainly lie – there are countless examples of it on threads here, for starters. A few years ago we had out MAN-LHR cancelled on the day and ground staff started off by insisting the only alternative was for us to come back in 2 days for the next LHR-GCM departure! After much standing of our ground and asking to be re-routed on via the USA they suddenly found they could pay £300 for a taxi to get us to LHR in time for the original GCM departure …

Sadly IME no scope for flexibility at MAN. No BA staff at MAN all Menzies agency who give a blanket statement that if need to arrange changes and all else direct with BA by phone ☹️.
